Swe­dish Disa­bi­li­ty Rights Acti­vists claim ’Full Par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on Now!’ – Con­struc­tions of citi­zenship by dis­ab­led peop­le in Sweden

Time: Thurs­day, 23 Novem­ber 2017, 12:00 – 13:30, Room: S 163

This lec­tu­re explo­res the citi­zenship of dis­ab­led peop­le in Swe­den. The first part traces the deve­lo­p­ment of the legal frame­work out­lining the citi­zenship rights for per­sons with disa­bi­li­ties in Swe­den. The second part exami­nes the blog ‘Full Par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on Now’, which was initia­ted by estab­lis­hed disa­bi­li­ty rights acti­vists in Swe­den. The lec­tu­re dis­cus­ses how the­se Swe­dish disa­bi­li­ty rights acti­vists aim to chal­len­ge a situa­ti­on that they defi­ne as ‘second-class citi­zenship’ and aspi­re to ‘full citizenship’.
